Now that it is Lent season, most of us have fish fry dinners on Friday. When you leave Milwaukee or Wisconsin, it is harder to find a restaurant that serves fish fry dinners. I know of many places in the area that serve great ones. Some churches hold fish fry dinners on Fridays. Where you get your fish fry is up to you. You have to choose the style and type of fish that you want and how you want it served. Smelt are usually in season during Lent. If you make your own fish fry dinner, you can save some money. If you don't like to eat sea food, then macaroni and cheese is an excellent dish to serve. Tuna casserole, salmon casserole, shrimp salad, sea food salad are other options for dinners. While you are eating your meal, think of our Savior and what He has done for us. You should thank Him. Some churches offer services on Wednesday nights during Lent to remind us of the Passion of our Lord. No matter what you do, the choice as to what to do is up to you. Enjoy fish fry dinners throughout the year. Fish is good for your heart. Please support the Bay View community.
